If you wish to ascertain how susceptible you to hypnotic influence, place
yourself in an easy sitting position and look steadily and intently at the black
spot (pupil) in the center of the eye above for five minutes. While looking at
the eye count very slowly to yourself; one, two, three, four and so on to five
hundred. Do not permit your eyes or mind to wander for one moment. At the
end of five minutes, if your eyelids feel heavy or tired; it you feel slightly
drowsy; if you have a slight tingling sensation in the arms or hands; if you
have a peculiar sensation in the head; or if you feel during the time an inclina
tion to wink the eyelids, you are quite susceptible to hypnotic influence, and
you should at once learn the science for your self-protection.
The eye of a person who understands hypnotism is a thousand times more
powerful than the cold, lifeless picture given above. To tell how susceptible you
would be to a real hypnotic eye, multiply the effect you perceived by 1,000.

TRUTH OF HRffIENIfIN TROUBLE
Turkish Bugaboo Explained by an Old Resident of
Special to The Globe.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Jan. 10.—I am
not a Turk, nor have I any particu
lar favor for some of the doings of the
Father of the Faithful, but I cannot
help writing down a few facts that
have come under my observation dur
ing a somewhat lengthy sojourn in the
Orient upon the Armenian question.
I do this, because, knowing that of all
people on earth who detest being bun
coed it is Americans, and that they
have been greatly imposed upon in
this particular I am positive.
The culprits in this case have main
ly been certain Christian journalists
who are deeply interested in the matter
of raising funds for the Armenian
To begin with the Armenian peasant,
as he is familiar to American readers
through the pages of religious periodi
cals, does not exist. The Armenian
country village is only an assemblage
of crude mud huts or burrows, where
these people live like civilized Ameri
can Indians, begrimed with smoke and
dirt, many of them demoralized by
drunkenness and the practice of all the
domestic vices supposed to be the ex
clusive amusement of the Moslem.
The Amenian of the cities is a cold
hearted fellow, who can make more out
of a sou than a half dozen Turks can.
He is an accomplished linguist, and
there is nothing in trade of which he
is not master. His commercial art is
so superb that the Turk is not often
able to find out how badly he has been
cheated. In all the towns of Beltis and
Sassun this Armenian trader has fat
tened on his Moslem neighbors. They
known it and, once their race crueity
has mastered them, they are not-slow
in hunting them down.
The massacres have, therefore, not
been the result of religious bigotry on
the part of the Turks, but a natural
outgrowth from political agitation and
the commercial sharp practices of the
The Armenians do not want to be
annexed to Russia. They will tell you
that they had rather remain under the
sultan than go under the czar, for the
simple reason that the czar would put
a speedy end to their political agita
tions, as he has done among the
Armenian Christians in Caucasus. They
want an Armenia where some half a
million of their people may continue to
intrigue and grow fat on the million
and a half of Moslem peasantry and
Kurds. Wtihout the intervention of the
sultan and his Kurds the Armenians
would live in.paradise. They now have
every privilege in Turkey except one.
Their word is accepted nowhere, not on
oath in the courts while the Moselem's
is accepted anywhere. This is the only
distinction made against them and they
are sharp enough to keep out of all
courts, except the blind and befogged
courts of public opinion among the

characteristics of Turkey, and in this
rough generalization is expressed the
condition that at last has aroused in

In Asia Minor there is a nomadic
tribe of robbers known as the Kurds ]
They are old as history. They live
mostly all by themselves in mud hut
villages, just as the rural Armenians
live on the plains and: mountain sides
In the early spring the Kurds leave
these huts, and. drive their herds long
distances over the mountains in search
of fine pastures. There they gather I
in tents, going to the cities later to
market their flocks. :. >:■> ,
Like all nomads they are instinctive

brave they have been made Ishmaelites
of by being the victims of all the wars
that have devastated this region since

and Moslem alike submit to their ex

the Kurds, in turn, protect them from

THE ST. PAUI, GLOBS, SUNDAY. JANUARY 11, 1903.
New Plays in New YbVk;
Some Ok Ones
Special to The Globe.
NEW YORK, Jan. B.—The volume of
theatrical productions in New York
fluctuates sharply from time to time.
Last week we had four entirely new
presentations and this week we have
had but two. Next Monday night again
there will be another huge influx of
plays and players, and perhaps the
week afterward nothing at all that is
fresh in the amusement line may come
to us. Of this week's offerings, the
most interesting is "Jim Bludso," pro
jected by Rich and Harris, with Rob
ert Hilliard as the star feature of the
cast. The melodrama was made known
ct the Fourteenth Street theater on
Monday evening and was viewed by
an audience not alone numerically ex
traordinary, but of a social quality
quite notable in this part of the town.
The last-named condition must be as
cribed to Mr. Hilliard's personal pop\i
larity among the "smart set," for mere
.melodrama, no matter how munificent
ly garnished with scenery and me
chanical effects, does not appeal to this
portion of the metropolitan commu
nity. "Jim Bludso," as already told in
this correspondence, is a stage adapta-

E. H. Sothern is now appearfff£;«BsiSu.irf!et under the management of

tion of two or three of the early poems
of John Hay, now a member of Presi
dent Roosevelt's cabinet. As' counter
plots to the story of the Mississippi
engineer who. when his steamboat
caught fire, ran her aground at the
loss of his own life, in order to insure
the safety of the passengers, the epi
sodes of Mr. Hay's "Little Breeches" |
and "Banty Tim" have been made use
of by the damatist, and the whole
mixture turns out to be exceedingly
interesting and highly dramatic. The
leading scenic episodes of "Jim Blud
so" are a steamboat race on the Mis
sissippi and the bursting of the levee j
by the swollen waters of that majestic j
stream, causing a disastrous flood and
furnishing opportunities for intrepid
acts on the part of the hero. It is per
haps quite superfluous to say that Mr.
Hilliard, in the pivotal character of
this play, affords a sturdy picture of
virile, courageous manhood. There is
no doubting the depth of the impres
sion he has made or the favor with
which the entire performance has beeu
received by the public. "Jim Bludso"
will have an extended and -prosperous
run in New York.
David Belasco is hard at work mak
ing ready for the presentation of a
play to be called "Five Little Pil
grims," a dramatization by Martha
Morton of the novel named "The Truth
Tellers." Considerable mystery is
maintained regarding the date of this
production, some persons insisting that
it will not occur until next season,
while others rather strongly intimate
that the event will take place before a
j great while at the Victoria theater,
where "The Eternal City," with Viola
Allen as the main individual attrac
tion, is not fulfilling the anticipations
of its most sanguine admirers. The
Belasco play was originally purchased
from Miss Morton by Fred Berger, who
used to manage the tours of the late
j Sol Smith Russell, and who intended
! to present it experimentally at his La
fayette Square theater in Washington.
Mr. Berger's stage manager, after read
ing the manuscript, thought he could
; improve upon it, and proceeded to
i make a number of alterations which
j may or may not have enhanced its
value. At any rate, when the work
was finally placed before the public,
it scored a decided success, and the
stage manager conceived the idea that
he was wholly responsible for this
j state of things. -So he set up a claim
I to the rights in it, and tried to dis-
J pose of them, but could not find an
j opening. Meanwhile Mr. Berger trans
i far red his ownership to Mr. Belasco,
j who, it is supposed, has done some re
i modeling on his own account. He will
I dress "The Five Litile Pilgrims" with
! the same elaboration that has marked
J his equipment of "Dv Barry," "Zaza"
and "The Darling of the Gods," and
| already has engaged some of the best
j juvenile actresses in this country for
the principal characters.
Meanwhile the other Belasco enter
j prises are going <*n swimmingly. At
his own theater Miss Bates, in "The
Darling of the Gods," is turning away
large numbers of people at every per
formance, and in Boston the * large
• Hollis Street theater is jammed almost
to suffocation every time Mrs. Carter
appears in "Dv Barry," while David
Warfield, with his unique characteri
zation of an East side Hebrew auc
tioneer, is entertaining large audi
ences "on the road."
The season of souvenir perform
ances in New York is beginning. '-The
| Silver Slipper" is approaching its one
hundredth repetition at the Broadway
theater, when suitable gifts designed
to commemorate the occasion will be
distributed among the members of the
audience. This musical work is hay
ing a wholly extraordinary run
Last week the receipts were'
in round figures, $16,000, a fact
that places Mr. Fisher's entertain
ment upon a par with "The Sleeping
Beauty and the Beast," which has
hitherto been regarded as quite the
most astonishing example of money
drawing theatrical attractions ever
brought to view in America. The box
office takings of "The Silver Slipper"
began at $12,00% a week, and have in
.creasad with urrdeviating steadinesss
until reaching the%>oint here mention
ed. There is no likelihood of a change
of bill at the Broadway for a consid
erable time to come.
Another souvenir performance will
be given during the current week, when
the "Ninety and Nine," Ramsey Mor
ris' railway locomotive melodrama
will record its 125 th representation at
the Academy of Music. This play, of
which Frank McKee is the manager,
has had the best run at the Academy
since "In Old Kentucky," justly re
garded as the most wonderfully suc
cessful melodrama of this time, inas
much as in its tenth year it has just
played to two $10,000 weeks in Chicago.
"The "Ninety a:nd Nine" will not move
out of New York until Jan. 24, when it
is to take up a tour embracing the
"Ulysses" Is Homeless.
Nobody seems to know just where
Charles Frohman intends to place
"ITlyses," the poetic spectacular play
which he has announced for some time
in February. Contrary to managerial
custom, he has not divulged the name
of the theater he has in view, and
there is a good deal of rando.m guess
ing going on in consequence. "Ulysses"
was first shown by Beerbohm Tree at
His Majesty's theater in London, where
it not alone attracted large houses, but
commanded the most earnest attention
by reason of the splendor of its pic
torial environment and the perfect
drilling of its horde of supernumer
aries. Mr. Frohman, it is understood,
has brought over to this country all
the. scenery, costumes and properties
made use of by Mr. Tree on the far
side of the Atlantic, and vill employ
some 200 persons in the New York re
vival—a condition of affairs indicating
that the exploitation of "Ulysses" here
will at least require the use of one
of the largest stages in the city.
The return of Edward Harrigan to
Broadway next Monday night at the
Bijou theater, in "The Bird in the
Cage," the newest of the Clyde Fitch
comedies, is looked upon, as something
of an event. By an odd coincidence,
it was at the Bijou that Harrigan was
last seen in New York, upon the occa
sion of the production of one of his
own plays. This was not successf;/.
and afterwards, until he was engaged
for the Fitch piece, Harrigan passed
the larger part of his time in the vau
deville theaters. "The Bird in the
Cage" has been played in Boston and
elsewhere, and report is to the effect
that Harrigan has been enabled to fully
rehabilitate himself in an artistic sense.
The engagement at the Bijou will be
for five weeks only, owing to the con
gestion of theatrical attractions in this
as well as all the other Broadway
The holiday business of many of the
New York playhouses last week was
entirely phenomenal, and in some in
stances all previous records were out
stripped. The largest audience of the
week was drawn to the New York
theater on New Year's eve. when the
receipts of a single performance of
"When Johnny Comes Marching Home"
touched the $3,000 mark. This melo
dramatic opera of the Civil war period
appears to have taken a solid hold up
on the regard of the community, being
quite out of the line of the regulation
musical works of the lighter order. The
crinolines worn by the female members
of Mr. Whitney's large company have
been an occasional source of mirth, as,
for instance, the other evening, when
one of the chorus girls, while engaged
in the execution of a waltz, became
entangled in her hoopskirt and fell over
the edge of the stage, plump into the
big bass drum. She was extricated
with considerable difficulty, the audi
ence rc-ceiving the episode fairly in
convulsions of laughter.
Langtry Fills the House.
There is no indication that Mrs.
Langtry will have any need to change
her bill at the Garrick theater during
her brief New York engagement. She
has held "Mile. Mars" in reserve in case
her own play, "The Cross-Ways,"
should prove ineffective, but the rush
to see this last named work—or, rather
Mrs. Langtry herself—has been so
great as to render the second produc
tion inexpedient. All feminine New
York seems to be talking of the Lang
. try dresses, which are spoken of as far
and away the most gorgeous and beau
tiful examples of millinery art ever
imported to this country from Paris
Heretofore It has not been usual to
. "bill" New York for incoming attrac
tions more tnan,£«sr or five dnys prior
to their advent, but E. R.,Reynolds the
manager of De Wolf Hopper, has ca«t
precedent aside for plastering the town
from one end to the other with hand
somely printed announcements of
the coming of his star three full weeks
ahead of that event. This action has
been the occasion of awakening pro
tests from various other managers on
the ground that interest in their own
announcements of current attractions
is drawn away by the Hopper posters
which they hold should not have been
put up until the Thursday prior to the
production of "Mr. Pickwick" at the
Herald Square. Mr. Reynolds how-

citizen, iot feasily stirred to outward

his customary dispassionate way, and

they are covered up by brigades from

E. S. Willard and his company on
Saturday night bade farewell to New
York for a period of indefinite dura
tion. This occurrence was recorded at
the Harlem opera house, to which es
tablishment some cf the largest audi
ences of the season had been attract
ed during the week. Mr. Willard will
now travel through the large cities un
til next May, at which time he will
sail for England, taking up his pro
fessional pursuits in that country for
at least a year and half before re
turning to America. During his ab
sence, however, he will be represented
in this part of the world by at least
one company traveling under his di
rection, presenting the new French
play, "L.U Chatelaine," and perhaps
other works from his repertoire. This
season promises to be entirely the
most successful of the Willard series
upon the American continent.
The eagerness to witness Julia Mar
lowe in "The Cavalier" nightly leads
considerable numbers of New Yorkers
to purchase seats in parts of the Cri
terion theater which were intended by
the builder of this structure for orna
ment rather than use. These spots are
the upper tiers of private boxes on
either side of the auditorium, directly
underneath the roof, and so situated
that their occupants cannot possibly
see very-much more than the tops of
the actors' and actresses' heads as
they go through the performance upon
the stage beneath. The holders of
these places seem well enough pleased,
however, for there is a certain sense
of satisfaction in participating even re
motely in events patronized with con
spicuous eagerness. The Criterion is
rilled almost to the pofnt of positive
discomfort every evening and at each
of Miss Marlowe's matinees, and the
competition for the purchase of tickets
is a quite amazing all-day spectacle.
News Notes of the Stage.
Charles Frohman has recalled Edwin
Stevens from the company supporting
Virginia Harned in "Iris," in order to
cast him for one of the most important
roles in a forthcoming New York pro

William Faversham closes his long
and brilliant season at the Empire
theater on Saturday night in "Impru
